ABSTRACT PAINTING WEEKENDS
We show you the 'secret' formula to create 'abstracts!!
You paint in a Professional Art Studio: JoeDaisy Studio, Dons Yard, Mapledurham, Oxon
We Bring Out the Artist in YOU!!
A 'Painting Outside the Box' ' weekend for the complete Beginner or Improver
Picasso said "There is no such thing as 'abstract' - you always start off with something then take away all traces of reality"
That's what we do - show you how to look at line, negatve space, spaces in between - sounds technical? Not really, we make it fun, rewarding and exciting.
Everyone has their own space, with Professional easel, painting table, paints, brushes etc. ALL PROFESSIONAL ART MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED.
Price is £250 for 2 days painting which includes all your art materials and lunch on both days.
WELCOME TO YOU to ask us any questions
SATURDAY (All times are approximate)
Arrive 9.30-9.45am Get together in our upstairs lounge, meet your fellow artists. Have a cup of tea or coffee, or water or even wine!!
10.0am Your tutor explains the course and introduces you to the Studio. No-one lives here, (although it looks like a beautiful house!) it is just a studio and is your "home" for the weekend. So relax and enjoy!
10.10am Choose your place in the painting studio. Every place is the same, with professional paints, brushes etc. Everyone has their own professional easel, painting table and high stool. Your tutor explains which are the best products to use and tells you why.
10.15am Your tutor shows you inspiration, concept and the 'secret' formula and talks you through how to create an abstract. All will be explained. We are not putting the whole programme down here because other providers copy our ideas!! (very naughty!)
Everyone works at their own pace and each student is encouraged to paint their own way. (We do NOT teach you to paint like us!! But just show your professional techniques)
We are not here to "Judge" you - just to help you create a professional painting!
